Rosario “Ross” Samuel Restuccio, 74, passed away Tuesday, January 5th, 2021. Ross was born October 9, 1946 to Frank and Catherine (Occhiato) Restuccio. He resided in Hammonton, NJ for many years before moving the family farm compound in neighboring Mullica Twp.
Ross served in the US Air Force from 1966-1969 where he learned the plumbing trade and went on to start his own plumbing business. He later opened South Jersey Well Drilling Co., a family business located in Hammonton, NJ, that he has been operating for 40 years.
Ross was larger than life and known as a “legend” by his many friends and family. He could often be found fishing for Tuna or anything that would bite, near his summer home in Cape May, NJ, hunting with his boys, grandchildren and buddies, cooking in the “shack” for his army of friends, and riding his golf cart around the family farm. He enjoyed listening to his oldest granddaughter’s music, watching his younger granddaughters ride horses, and his grandsons play baseball. Ross was notorious for giving everyone orders and calling them by names he felt more fitting than their own (yo buck); oddly enough everyone loved him for it. He dearly loved his wife, Sally. He could endlessly be heard calling out her name for the littlest things or just to be sure she was nearby and she enjoyed every minute of it.
Ross is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Sally V. Restuccio (nee Chalk): along with two sons. Ross Samuel Jr. (Sharon) Restuccio of Mullica Twp., NJ, Frank (Cara) Restuccio of Mullica Twp., NJ. Grandchildren Sarah, Ross III, and Stephen Restuccio, Gracie, Frankie, Rylee, and Cody Restuccio; Brother Domenic (Debbie) and nieces Sheri and Ashley Restuccio.
He is predeceased his parents, Frank and Catherine Restuccio .
Family and friends are invited to attend his viewing Friday, January 15th from 1:00-2:00pm at the Marinella Funeral Home 102 N. Third St. Hammonton, NJ. Services and burial will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ross’s name to Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation 2361 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10306
